每日灵修 6/24/2019 “我把我有的给你”

一天,在下午三点祷告的时间,彼得和约翰去圣殿。 2 有一个生来瘸腿的人天天被人抬到圣殿美门的外面,向进殿的人乞讨。 3 他看见彼得和约翰要进殿,就求他们施舍。 4 二人定睛看他,彼得说:“看着我们!” 5 那人就紧盯着他们,期盼能有所收获。

6 彼得说:“金子、银子我都没有,但是我把我有的给你。我奉拿撒勒人耶稣基督的名,命令你起来行走!”

7 彼得拉着他的右手扶他起来,那人的脚和踝骨立刻变得强健有力。 8 他跳了起来,站稳后开始行走,跟着彼得和约翰进入圣殿,走着跳着赞美上帝。 9 大家看见他一边走一边赞美上帝, 10 认出他就是那个在美门外面的乞丐,都为发生在他身上的事而感到惊奇、诧异。 11 那乞丐紧紧拉着彼得和约翰的手走到所罗门廊,众人都跑过来,啧啧称奇。使徒行传 3:1-11

One day Peter and John were going up to the temple at the hour of prayer, at three o’clock in the afternoon. 2 And a man lame from birth was being carried in. People would lay him daily at the gate of the temple called the Beautiful Gate so that he could ask for alms from those entering the temple. 3 When he saw Peter and John about to go into the temple, he asked them for alms. 4 Peter looked intently at him, as did John, and said, “Look at us.” 5 And he fixed his attention on them, expecting to receive something from them. 6 But Peter said, “I have no silver or gold, but what I have I give you; in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth,[a] stand up and walk.” 7 And he took him by the right hand and raised him up; and immediately his feet and ankles were made strong. 8 Jumping up, he stood and began to walk, and he entered the temple with them, walking and leaping and praising God. 9 All the people saw him walking and praising God, 10 and they recognized him as the one who used to sit and ask for alms at the Beautiful Gate of the temple; and they were filled with wonder and amazement at what had happened to him. Acts 3:1-11

基督教会诞生后的第一个神迹就是彼得医治瘸腿的乞丐的神迹。这一点也不出奇:

  • 门徒做师傅所做的事。 耶稣是最伟大的医治者, 彼得在耶稣升天后像耶稣一样行医治的神迹,顺理成章。
  • 彼得没有金子银子; 但这不是什么缺憾。 他有比金银更宝贵的—那就是耶稣基督的名。
  • 耶稣的名代表着耶稣的心愿,性格,  权柄,和能力。 是耶稣给了彼得医治病人的慈悲心肠和超人的能力。
  • 因此, 人们没有把彼得当作“神医“来敬拜, 而是赞美上帝。
  • 这个医治的神迹吸引力了众人的注意力。 彼得利用这个机会来传扬耶稣。 他告诉众人这个乞丐“能痊愈是因为他信耶稣” (使徒行传 3:16)。
  • 彼得劝告众人看到这个神迹就要悔改, 接受上帝选立的耶稣为基督(救世主)。上帝就会除去他们的罪过, 赐给他们焕然一新的日子   (使徒行传3:12-26)
  • 使徒行传第三章以彼得医治瘫痪乞丐的神迹 开始, 以彼得规劝众人悔改,信耶稣, 并且等候耶稣再来的日子结束。

祷告:

全知全能的天父,

感谢祢赐给我们耶稣的圣名,

靠着耶稣的名,

不仅我们的身体得以治愈,

而且我们的心灵得以圣洁。

靠着耶稣的名,

不仅我们个人的生命焕然一新,

而且我们的世界有一天会万象更新。

愿我们尊崇和高举耶稣的名,

奉耶稣的名来做荣神益人的事。

阿门。
